At those championships Khnykin was a member of the Soviet gold medal winning 4x100 metre freestyle relay team, his only international title. At the 1992 Olympics Khnykin was a member of the Unified Team’s 4x100 freestyle and medley relay teams and won silver in both events. He also surprised by finishing fourth in the 100 fly final at those Olympics. In 1993 Khykin won his only individual medals at major international tournaments, winning bronze in the 100 freestyle at both the European Championships and Universiade, now representing newly independent Ukraine.

After finishing his sporting career, Khnykin worked as a swimming coach in his native Ukraine.
